Inquiry report

The Government has asked the Commission to examine the by-laws, processes and practices of local planning and development systems across New Zealand’s faster-growing urban areas. We have also been asked to identify councils that are effective in making enough land available to meet housing demand and processes that could be adopted more widely. In addition, the Commission will examine overseas approaches to identify leading practices that may provide valuable lessons for New Zealand.
